Re: Stop freakin' waving at me!

Has anybody heard the Safeco Insurance radio commercials about "boat people"? I couldn't find a copy of it online, but it basically says something along the lines of "I don't understand boat people. All the do is go around in circles all day waving at each other..." I thought it was pretty effing funny.

Personally I like it when people wave to me. Makes me feel special.

I like to think that sailboats and motorboats waving to each other might increase the courtesy and understanding between these different species. I did draw the line once when a large motorboat that was in the process of nearly swamping us, waved!! Thought maybe he was being ironic, but could only return a less friendly gesture.
... unlike you who is simply trying to buck the trend ... oh deer ...

Good grief, if your from the PNW you should know that is a sea otter. Wombat, schvambat indeed.



Why are people happy to accept science which makes their life easier while rejecting science that makes their faith or beliefs more difficult?

Remarkably adaptable critter the wombat .... backstroke was a piece of piss, but just you try typing with those paws .... buttons on the chart plotter are a challenge as well.

Now be quiet ... can't you see I'm trying to ignore you ?

Since they discovered the forestroke led to chafing.
they have yet to discover the breaststroke.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere:
